RBCC Partner Technology Powers Better Models, Better Research

NOKOMIS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The international profile of Rainbow Coral Corp.'s (OTCBB: RBCC) partner technology, the Bio-Assembler, continues to rise as the groundbreaking 3D cell culturing device was featured in another new study published in a respected scientific journal.

Recently, researchers from RBCC's joint venture partner Nano3D Biosciences (n3D) and Rice University published a study in the scientific journal Acta Biomaterialia demonstrating the advantage of its technology in creating multi-type 3D cultures that closely mimic native tissue. The group, led by Prof. K. Jane Grande-Allen, Bioengineering, used n3D's patented Bio-Assembler magnetic levitation technology to build a sub-physiological model of the aortic valve that compared better to the native valve than traditional 2D cultures.

A 3D model that mimics the valve structure could serve as a foundation for groundbreaking cardiovascular research and drug screening—which is why the Bio-Assembler is rapidly gaining in popularity in cellular research labs around the world.

The Bio-Assembler has been the star technology in a number of recent high-profile scientific journal articles, including studies in Nature Reviews Cancer,Nature Protocols and Biophysica Acta. That's good news for RBCC, which signed a joint venture agreement to help market the technology last year. Widely read by researchers and scientists, these scientific journals have already given the Bio-Assembler a big boost in name recognition among biotech professionals.

Rainbow Biosciences is dedicated to the marketing and development of new medical and research technology innovations designed to help capture a growing share of a booming biotech industry alongside Bristol Myers Squibb Co. (NYS: BMY) , Biogen Idec Inc. (NAS: BIIB) , Abbott Laboratories (NYS: ABT) and Amgen Inc. (NAS: AMGN) .
